Blake Shelton to Kick Off Friends and Heroes Tour

5th November 2018 | Category: Concerts

Blake Shelton decided to mix old with the new country on his upcoming 2019 tour called Friend and Heroes Tour.

He invited country veterans John Anderson, Trace Adkins and the Bellamy Brothers to join him on stage along with the special guest Lauren Alaina, AMC new female vocalist of the year. The tour will kick off on Valentine’s Day on 14 February at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma and wrap up on 23 March in Albany, New York.

Tickets for all dates can be found here, hurry up and don’t miss this amazing group of performers.

Shelton will perform at 19 arenas across North America and The Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, Trace Adkins and Lauren Alaina have all signed on to provide support for the tour and all appeared in a comedic video Blake’s team put together to announce the tour. In the short video, Shelton orders a beer from bartender Alaina and then schools a bunch of young country fans on the merits of Anderson and the Bellamys.

Anderson, Adkins, and the Bellamy Brothers have over 150 years of music-making experience between them. This tour will be a historic opportunity to see these country legends playing together in arenas. Anderson is the real legend of the genre with epic songs like “Swingin’”, “Straight Tequilla Night” and “Seminole Wind”. Howard and David Bellamy are known for “Redneck Girl” and “Let Your Love Flow”. Lauren Alaina was the runner-up of the tenth season of American Idol and released her debut album in 2011. With her second album Road Less Traveled in 2017, she achieved her first No.1 hit and topped both Country Airplay and Billboard Charts. Mixing experience with some fresh blood, Shelton once again proves his commitment to the country music community.

Buy your tickets on time and enjoy.

“I’m really excited about my tour because it’s taking where I came from and the music I listened to growing up and actually introducing it to a whole new audience,” Shelton said in a statement.

“I feel like a lot of people might know the Bellamy Brothers’ and John Anderson’s music, but maybe they’re not familiar with who they are as artists. I think that this is going to be a great opportunity for the country music fan base to be re-introduced to these guys and, selfishly, I’m just excited to share the stage with them! It’ll be great to have Trace back out on the road with us, and I can’t wait for one of my newer friends and heroes, Lauren Alaina, to blow these crowds away.”

Shelton is promoting not only his origins but also his eleventh studio album Texoma Shore, releasecd in November. The country singer, songwriter and TV personality has been on the judge’s chair at The Voice since its inception, and for 6 out of 15 seasons, a member of his team won which proves he is also a great mentor.
